Zaisan Memorial, Ulaanbaatar

3.9
Pay tribute to the largest movement of motorized troops in the history of warfare at Zaisan Memorial, a monumental concrete sculpture perched on the top of a hill. A Soviet T34 tank mounted on a concrete pedestal commemorates the efforts of the World War II Mongolia People's Tank Brigade, which covered the distance from Moscow to Berlin. At the 360-degree observation deck, a concrete memorial in the shape of a colossal proletarian flag towers over a large curved mural depicting friendship between the peoples of the USSR and Mongolia.

  • The Memorial is worth a visit, because it is a nice view of the city and the surrounding area. At the foot of a golden statue of Buddha is lit in Budhově Park. Otherwise, it's a bit of a special place, a monument significantly recalls the Socialist monuments. The local people here but goes love and allegedly with respect. To visit it is sufficient to just under an hour.

  • Great place to visit in Ulaanbaatar! About an hours walk, or short taxi/ bus ride (number 55 or 52), from the heart of the city. Great views of the city and surrounding Bogd Khan mountains. Place comes alive at night with many people coming up to watch the sun set
  • From zaisan monument you can enjoy amazing view of Ulaanbaatar city. Recently Zaisan Hill Complex openned, which you can enjoy your time.
  • Worth the hike up the stairs for a view over Ulaanbaatar city. Stay for sunset on a clear day for the loveliest views.
  • Very cool art! Lots of wind! I counted 600 steps exactly!
